Pain Tracker & Diary by Nanolume® "Created for patients who want to show others the severe types of pain they are living with every day."
TRACK IT BETTER. TREAT IT BETTER. Now you can distinctly track, map, and monitor not only the intensity, but also the pattern and extent of spread, of at least 12 uniquely different types of pain on your mobile device, using patent-pending technology.
PAIN IS LIFE-CHANGING When you are suffering with pain, what you want is to feel better again.
Tracking your pain is important in treating your pain. When your healthcare providers can see how your pain changes over time, trends can emerge that might otherwise go unnoticed.
Pain is a complex sensation that can constantly change with varying intensities, textures, locations, and patterns of spread. This is especially true for individuals who suffer from a severe type of chronic pain called Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS). Trying to remember and describe the details of the pain you have experienced over the course of days or weeks can be daunting.
Nanolume® makes it easy for you to track, analyze, and map at least 12 distinct types of pain every day. By more completely knowing what types of pain a person is suffering with, such knowledge can be used to improve the basis upon which your diagnosis and treatment can be developed and/or adjusted.
PAIN IS DIFFERENT Healthcare professionals consider pain to be the 5th vital sign, along with blood pressure, heart rate, ventilation rate, and temperature. While the first 4 vital signs are objective findings that can be easily measured, the 5th vital sign is different.
Pain is a subjective – not objective – vital sign; it cannot be measured. Its assessment relies on the ability of the patient to describe what he or she feels.
This app allows you to better document and communicate what you feel to others.
